This is for several challenges: Kathleen's HYCCT - honor your elders and vintage for extra points; FS351 - case a card from Cathy's (catdidit) gallery; and for the CAS244 challenge - to tear or distress paper.
I chose to case Cathy's Daisies on Print card. I used the same colors and my collage image has flowers on top of script. Cathy's card inspired me to use this image as well as the HYCCT challenge. I am honoring an older friend of mine named Rose who passed away 1.5 years ago. She was my mother's age and was a mentor to me as well as my friend. I miss her very much. I thought this image looked kind of vintage and I sponged the colors lightly so they look faded.
I distressed the edges of the image with scissors before I mounted it with black paper.

Oh this is so pretty Harriet! Love the collage image, but it is your flow of color that really makes this so beautiful! LOVE your sponging and just the bit of distressing! Thank you for sharing a little about your friend and mentor Rose. Your card truly celebrates her!!!
